Last night’s Republican debate got off to an uncomfortable start last night when Newt Gingrich was asked the first question of the night about his ex-wife Marianne Gingrich and whether he asked for an “open marriage.” CNN moderator John King asked the question because Marianne Gingrich appeared in an ABC News interview that also aired last night claiming Newt cheated on her with current wife Callista Gingrich and asked for an “open marriage.” When Marianne Gingrich said she didn’t want an open marriage, and in fact that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Newt asked for a divorce.

The candidate issued a statement saying he agrees with the following:

Now, marital fidelity is a fine idea indeed for those who choose it; the thing is, he hasn’t. Gingrich is on Wife #3 and carried on an affair with Wife #2 while he lead the impeachment campaign against President Clinton. (Gingrich has also been accused of filing for divorce from Wife #1 while she was hospitalized for cancer, although his daughter disputes that claim.) Keep reading »
